Alex Kral may not be at West Ham United next season with two Italian clubs allegedly eyeing up a move to sign the midfielder.
That’s according to a report from TuttoMercatoWeb who claim that Atalanta and Bologna are keen to sign the Czech Republic international.

David Moyes brought Kral to the London Stadium from Spartak Moscow on a season-long loan on transfer deadline day in the summer.
The Hammers have an option to sign him permanently next summer for around £17 million (£12 million plus a potential £5 million in add-ons) according to ExWHUemployee.
Kral has only been given 255 minutes action by Moyes this season. Incredibly, 21 West Ham players have played more minutes than the 23-year-old so far this term (Transfermarkt).
It is clearly obvious to see that David Moyes simply doesn’t rate the Czech Republic international. If he did, he would have used him far more often than he has done this season.
And Kral’s days at the London Stadium could very well be numbered…
Kral set for West Ham United exit
TuttoMercatoWeb reckon that Atalanta and Bologna are both keen to sign the Spartak Moscow-owned midfielder.
Another potential outcome mooted by TMW is thew Hammers signing Kral on a permanent deal and then selling him on to one of the two Italian clubs.
We believe that David Moyes clearly hasn’t been impressed by what he has seen from Kral on the training ground. He would have given the 23-year-old more minutes if he had been.
If the 23-year-old is sent back to Spartak Moscow, Moyes will have to sign two central midfielders at the very least with Mark Noble set to retire and Declan Rice’s future up in the air.
We think that sending Kral back to Moscow will be the right call. If he had anything about him, he would have been given more opportunities this season.
The Czech international obviously isn’t good enough to be playing regular Premier League football. And with Moyes planning a summer overhaul at the London Stadium, it appears as though Kral’s time at the club is nearing an end.
